Students eagerly waited after a long period of study and tiresome schedule for a peaceful vacation. Student hopes and waits for the entire year for winter vacation with a hope to explore something new and spend times with families and friends.
Parents in rural areas gets an opportunity for their children to come back home and give an additional helping hand for household works and for urban parents, it’s time for them to send their child in some good programs so that they can learn something new and get engage in something productive.
Some students get engage in doing some temporary job and earn some money for the next semester. Getting employed is not necessary, any activity that the students pursue during the break, be it reading, playing sport, dancing and singing should be also encouraged.
A student of Lungtenzampa MSS, Dorji Tshewang said, “I am always excited and eagerly waiting for winter vacation for a long time, as during this time, I can help my parents as they have been always busy helping me and other siblings leaving behind their busy schedule.”
This is an important time for parents to spend time with their children in their care as this is a time where they can share and bond together and give a good lesson for their children.

Parents must talk with their children, to find out what they plan to do. They have to share what they think to do and the parents should see that they do not involve in anything bad that influence them from going in wrong path.
